Crag features

Routes up to 20m. Some seepage and green after rain, sheltered. Very quiet, good quality rock [Paul Robins]

Approach notes

No access problems.

Located to the north of refuse workings on hill opposite Brinscall.

Restricted Access

Part of the quarry is still being worked and the quietest time to visit is on Sundays. Most of the climbing lies well away from the quarrying activities.

Couldn't get in here today, the quarry has been reopened for business according to the locals for the last 12 months apparently
